In 1508, despite strong advice to the contrary, the powerful Pope Julius II commissioned Michelangelo to paint the ceiling of the newly restored Sistine Chapel. With little experience as a painter (though famed for his sculpture David), Michelangelo was reluctant to begin the massive project. Michelangelo and the Pope's Ceiling recounts the four extraordinary years Michelangelo spent laboring over the vast ceiling while the power politics and personal rivalries that abounded in Rome swirled around him. Battling against ill health, financial difficulties, domestic problems, the pope's impatience, and a bitter rivalry with the brilliant young painter Raphael, Michelangelo created scenes so beautiful that they are considered to be among the greatest masterpieces of all time. A panorama of illustrious figures converged around the creation of this magnificent work-from the great Dutch scholar Erasmus to the young Martin Luther-and Ross King skillfully weaves them through his compelling historical narrative, offering uncommon insight into the intersection of art and history. Four years earlier, at the age of twenty-nine, Michelangelo had unveiled his masterful statue of David in Florence; however, he had little experience as a painter, even less working in the delicate medium of fresco, and none with the curved surface of vaults, which dominated the chapel's ceiling. The temperamental Michelangelo was himself reluctant, and he stormed away from Rome, risking Julius's wrath, only to be persuaded to eventually begin. Michelangelo would spend the next four years laboring over the vast ceiling. He executed hundreds of drawings, many of which are masterpieces in their own right. Contrary to legend, he and his assistants worked standing rather than on their backs, and after his years on the scaffold, Michelangelo suffered a bizarre form of eyestrain that made it impossible for him to read letters unless he held them at arm's length. Nonetheless, he produced one of the greatest masterpieces of all time, about which Giorgio Vasari, in his Lives of the Artists, wrote, 'There is no other work to compare with this for excellence, nor could there be.' Ross King's fascinating new book tells the story of those four extraordinary years. Battling against ill health, financial difficulties, domestic problems, inadequate knowledge of the art of fresco, and the pope's impatience, Michelangelo created figures-depicting the Creation, the Fall, and the Flood-so beautiful that, when they were unveiled in 1512, they stunned his onlookers. Modern anatomy has yet to find names for some of the muscles on his nudes, they are painted in such detail. While he worked, Rome teemed around him, its politics and rivalries with other city-states and with France at fever pitch, often intruding on his work. From Michelangelo's experiments with the composition of pigment and plaster to his bitter competition with the famed painter Raphael, who was working on the neighboring Papal Apartments, Ross King presents a magnificent tapestry of day-to-day life on the ingenious Sistine scaffolding and outside in the upheaval of early-sixteenth-century Rome.… (lisätietoja)

Quick read, filled with interesting details about Michelangelo, Raphael, Pope Julius II, and the figures of the Sistine Chapel. ( )
  revatait | Feb 21, 2021 |
This was very interesting nonfiction about Michelangelo's painting of the Sistine Chapel, but also about the activities of the artist Raphael and Pope Julius II during the same period. It includes diagrams and illustrations, some of which are color plates in the center of the book (that I wish had been larger), 28 pages of end notes, a 10-page bibliography, and a 17-page index (that would have been longer if the font was larger).

És un llibre divulgatiu excel·lent, tant del llarg procés de pintat que Miquel Àngel va dur a terme durant quasi quatre anys la volta de la Capella Sixtina com del seu moment històric.

Sobre l’obra pictòrica, l’autor explica extensament el procés que va seguir Miquel Àngel per executar la seva pintura més característica, la qual s’ha convertit en un dels símbols més potents del talent humà. Un cop consagrat com l’autor de La Pietat i David, obres mestres de l’escultura, l’autor narra les múltiples relacions conflictives que envoltaven el treball de Miquel Àngel, com el seu dilema irresoluble entre seguir l’encàrrec del Papa - que no era el que ell volia - com a via per poder posteriorment exercir el seu veritable talent esculpint les figures del mausoleu papal, la seva relativament menor experiència prèvia com a pintor, la relació moltes vegades tensa amb el seu pare i germans i la por – a vegades arribant a la paranoia- a que Bramante –arquitecte papal- el fes fracassar.

Però també entra en àmbits molt interessants; l’equip de pintors que va acompanyar al gran mestre i quin va ser el seu paper; les fonts i les influències que van definir el contingut de les pintures, les innovacions que va aportar en molts àmbits com en la representació de Deu i la narració del paper de la dona, el complex i difícil procés de pintat al fresc, l’elaboració dels colors de les pintures, la construcció de l’andami que permeté treballar en alçada, el pagament dels seus serveis, l’ús de models masculins fins per a figures femenines creant dones amb canells i mans desproporcionades, etc..

Les influències clàssiques sobre l’obra són evidents, com per exemple el fragment recentment descobert d’El Tors Belvedere va influenciar fortament algunes figures. Però Miquel Àngel reinterpreta l’ideal grec de l’ideal de la bellesa; per Miquel Àngel el més bell és el cos masculí, fins al punt que el cos de les dones te unes proporcions i una musculatura masculina. I també incorpora innovacions en el paper de la dona i l’home. En la temptació de la fruita prohibida, el comportament d’Eva és diferent al del relat bíblic tradicional; Eva no dona la fruita prohibida a Adam, sinó que ell l’agafa directament de l’arbre, pecant sense poder culpar a intermediaris.

Els personatges principals son Miquel Àngel i el Papa Juli II; es descriu be els seus caràcters en part contraposats i en part similars, atès que els dos eren persones extraordinàries en el seu camp. També ho era Raphael, el qual pintava les estances papals al mateix temps que Miquel Àngel treballava a la Capella Sixtina. I, encara que no apareix en el llibre, anys després el propi Miquel Àngel pintarà El Judici Final a la façana de l'altar major de la Capella, fent-la encara més excepcional.

Pel llibre apareixen molts personatges contemporanis que afegeixen context històric a la narració principal: Leonardo da Vinci, els Medici, els Borgia, Maquiavel, Bramante, Martí Luter i una llarga llista, a part dels estats que guerrejaven sobre el sol italià, com venecians, francesos, espanyols i els mercenaris suïssos.

A part de la història principal, hi ha dues narracions accessòries que m’han cridat molt l’atenció perquè descobreixen alguns del elements més xocants de la Itàlia de principis del segle XVI; son els carnavals de Roma, celebracions amb escasses restriccions morals, i el setge de l’exercit papal a la ciutat de Mirandola, que Juli II va encapçalar personalment.

Destaca l’ús de fonts com les cartes que va escriure Miquel Àngel al seu pare i la famosa obra “Vida dels millors arquitectes, pintors i escultors italians” de Vassari.

El llibre te un estil semblant al també molt recomanable La cúpula de Brunelleschi, del mateix autor. És un episodi de la història de l’art que és fàcil de llegir. ( )

Ma che bel libro, un saggio di storia e storia dell'arte che si legge come un romanzo. La figura di Michelangelo inserita nel contesto storico e artistico e delineata con raffinatezza e semplicità. Ce ne fossero altri, di libri così! ( )

A great telling of the story of the Sistine chapel. I wish I had read it before seeing the ceiling. At least I have pictures. I have a much better and hopefully more accurate understanding of Michelangelo the man. It also depends my understanding of his artistic influence. ( )

The Piazza Rusticucci was not one of Rome's most prestigious addresses. Though only a short walk from the Vatican, the square was humble and nondescript, part of a maze of narrow streets and densely packed shops and houses that ran west from where the Ponte Sant'Angelo crossed the Tiber River.
